As more and more republican-run states cease to provide government services and start running their state governments like overgrown homeowner's associations; the more and more power and money they pass along to federal government control

They can't deny the benefits, only make it harder for some people to access those benefits.

I disagree. While denying these equal rights based on sexual orientation is deplorable, it's perfectly constitutional as far as the state constitutions are concerned.

"Natioanl Guard" is a misnomer as these are STATE militias, under the exclusive control of the governor of the state. The are completely independent of federal control, as the Founders saw a need for each state have their own militia to preserve the states from being usurped by the federal government, and having their sovereignty eroded by, or completely ignored by, the federal government.

We are a nation of STATES. The states created the federal government. Not the other way around.

Actually they are funded primarily with federal funds and it's the federal benefits I was referring to.
